All women 65 and older should be tested for osteoporosis, or low bone mass, which places people at greater risk for fractures. There usually are no osteoporosis symptoms until a bone breaks, making screening so important.
This initial bone density screening, particularly appropriate for women younger than 65, makes a preliminary measurement of bone density using ultrasound on the heel to determine if further diagnostic testing is indicated. No physician referral is required.
